Volunteering & Outreach
Beginning of Semester (BOS) party
The beginning of semester (BOS) party attracts hundreds of engineering students each year and serves as an exhibition for the many engineering student groups on campus. Attendees can expect to dine on free food & drinks, pick up a BOS Party t-shirt, play games and learn more about all the Cullen College has to offer.
The beginning of semester (BOS) party is a great time to showcase and introduce the incoming freshmen and engineering students to the many projects and activities that AIAA UH provides. The event also allows the club to spread it name across campus.
Girls Engineering for the Future
Female STEM (science, technology, engineering, and math) enthusiasts in grades 4-8 are invited to participate in the “Girls Engineering the Future!” event at the University of Houston Cullen College of Engineering. The Cullen College’s award-winning engineering professors and students will lead fun, hands-on activities to introduce Houston-area girls to the wide and wonderful world of engineering. Girls participating in the event will learn about the different engineering fields and professions and engage with current and former industry leaders.
Through this event AIAA UH aims to inspire and open the minds of the girls that come learn about aeronautics and astronautics. We do this by teaching the basic of rocketry through demonstrations of launching rockets and showing the systems implemented in a rocket. We also inform the of the different aspects of AIAA.
Clear Lake High School Outreach Event
During the Clear Lake High School Outreach Event, AIAA UH talked to middle and high school students and parents about what engineering is like and how to get started at a young age
Mars Rover Celebration
This event is UH's premier educational outreach program that brings hundreds of students ranging from 3rd to 8th grade to the university and spreads the importance of space education. This program will excite future engineers and scientists, by covering planetary science and aerospace engineering.
The event is staffed and judged by volunteers from UH, NASA, as well as members of AIAA-UH.
This being our flagship volunteering event, we put the utmost care to teach the future engineers and scientists all that we know and hope to foster leadership, teamwork, and communication among the students. Within this event, we created engineering challenges such paper airplane challenge, where the young students learn the basics of aerodynamics, to better develop innovative thinking and provide must needed knowledge.
